James, D B (1987) On the capture of Wilson's Storm Petrel oceanites Oceanicus oceanicus (Khul) from the south east coast of India. Journal of Bombay Natural History Society, 84 (1). p. 432.
During the fifth cruise on board FORV Sagar Sampada from Madras to Cochin in July, 1985 I caught two Wilson's Storm Petrels when they landed on the deck at dusk, probably attracted to the ship by the deck lights. When caught they did not make any attempt to escape due to failing light. They were active and pecked when the hand was taken near them.
